The northbound carriageway of the A12 in Essex was shut after a lorry crashed through the central reservation.

A 20-mile stretch of road was closed between Boreham and Marks Tey after the lorry, laden with fruit, careered out of control at about 01:00 BST.

Sgt Jason Dearsley said it was very fortunate that no-one had been killed in the crash.
